Cylinder Stud Thread Repair Jig Rental
Rental Fee $65.00 includes shipping to you.
Jig rental has taken a jump recently, mostly due to Paypal now charging me $9 to return your deposit. If anyone has a better idea for security let me know.
If you've got a pulled cylinder stud and aren't in the mood to buy a jig and helicoil setup for
many hundreds of dollars I've got a solution for you. RENT MINE! It will cost you $65.00 for
a 7 day rental. Rental includes the jig, drill bit, helicoil tap and insertion tool, one long
helicoil, and postage to you. You will need to furnish the drill motor with 3/8" or larger
chuck, a tap handle or socket to drive the tap. and return postage. Comes with full
instructions. Payment is via paypal and will need to include $300 tool deposit that will be
returned to you when I get the tool back. It all fits in a small Priority Mail Flat Rate box,
presently around $7.80. Addl. helicoils are $4.50.
Here's a great webpage detailing how to repair you pulled cylinder stud.
Using the jig and fixing your stripped block is pretty easy as long as you can be patient and follow instructions. \
If you aren't familier with using helicoil repairs, get a buddy who is familier to help or read up on the subject.

BMW has stopped supplying the long helicoil with a thread locking compound. Have to wonder why. I supply the same length helicoil and you need to supply your own red locktite. Doesn't need much just a little on the outside of the coil before insertion.
